— Rookie Danny Santana had five hits and four RBIs, and the Minnesota Twins scored nine runs in the eighth inning of a rain-delayed 16-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday.

Santana had two hits and two RBIs in the Twins’ big inning, when they sent 14 batters to the plate and had nine hits against three relievers. The five hits set a season high for the rookie center fielder, who was one off his best for RBIs set June 7 against Houston.

The Twins had back to back to back home runs in the ninth from Chris Parmelee, Oswaldo Arcia and Eric Fryar.

Dayan Viciedo hit a two-run homer for Chicago, which was hurt by poor bullpen work. Relievers Javy Guerra, Taylor Thompson, Ronald Belisario, Eric Surkamp and Andre Rienzo allowed a total of 15 runs and 18 hits over the final four innings.
